Hamilton Township Democratic Mayoral candidate Barbara Plumeri held a kick-off small donor meet and greet yesterday at Killarney's Publick House in Hamilton.
Among the some 200 people who attended the $25 per head event were County Executive Brian Hughes, Senators Shirley Turner and Linda Greenstein, Assemblymen Wayne DeAngelo and Dan Benson and several Mercer County Freeholders.
Plumeri is challenging for the mayor's seat vacated by Republican John Bencivengo who was found guilty of corruption charges late last year. Former Republican Councilwoman Kelly Yaede was tapped to fill Bencivengo's spot until the special election in November and will seek to maintain the seat in Republican hands.

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
